This infuriated Lord Kitchener, the commander in cheif of Indian army based in shimla and Lord Kitchener completly banned Bhupinder Singh from entering Shimla. Maharajah shifted residence with his new found love to his palace at Chail, A near by hill station. The girl was probably the daughter of a high ranking British officer, though it is also rumored that  she was relative of Lord Kitchener.

Scandal Point, carries its legacy and reputation it carries today. People still love gathering at the Mall to gossip about who ran off with whom. And love affairs were quite scandalous” e.g the stories of the ‘grass-widows’, a label given to young, married women who spent time in Shimla when their husbands were away in the rest of the country. And of  ‘fishing fleet’, young unmarried women who sailed out every year from Britain to find husbands.
